    I think it's a ca. 1950 Morris Oxford. The roofline is very Morris.

    Yep, 1948 to 54 Morris Oxford series MO.

  • Thanks to everybody, you guys really know your stuff !!!!
  • This photo was taken in 1912. I sure could use some help in identifying the make/model of the car

    If you are having trouble posting a photo, it has to be uploaded to a site that actually "hosts" the photo for you, such a photobucket.com. Then you post a link to the photo's address on that site.

    AFter you post the link, you can select the whole link, and click on the IMG button below the post window and the proper HTML marks make it show up automatically when the post opens for one of us to read it.
  • Let me try this again. I placed the photo on one of my sites then linked to it. It appeared fine in the review

    Definitely a Ford Model T, in looking at the details, maybe a 1910 model.
  • Thanks fintail - I also thought that and googled model T pictures. One of the things I noticed was the front support for the windshield for model Ts seemed to be all straight. This one has a slight curve in it. Do you know if any model Ts had this curve?

    That is probably something done by the owner - I noticed the curved supports too. Perhaps these are aftermarket items - Model Ts had a huge amount of available accessories, or maybe were just bent, as cars had a harsh life then.

    The fenders and radiator shell appear to be definite Model T to me, and the horizontal line on the rear door is only through the 1910 model - rear door from 1911 onward was smooth. If you notice, the car also lacks an actual front door beside the spare tire - the car appears to have an accessory leather/treated cloth cover (which dates it pre-1912).

    I agree with Fintail - in that era, you bought the car, and often went elsewhere for things like the windshield. Our family's 1911 Regal had many 'aftermarket' parts. That's how things were done back then.
  • I appreciate everyones help.

  • This is my last car to try and identify. I have tried Google images but can not find anything that looks like this.

    Thanks Again

    Looks a lot like a 4 door version of this 1938 Ford:

    The hubcaps and headlights are very distinctly Ford.

  • Thanks texases - that's it. I found a 4 door version of it online and it looks just like it. It is a 1938 Ford Deluxe

    Thanks Again

    "The hubcaps and headlights are very distinctly Ford. "

    I didn't realize the hubcaps were also a clue, I just went off the headlights. Now I know.
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 46,197
    You can just make out the "V 8" symbol on the caps.

    It's a Buick LeSabre, either a '69 or '70. I'm leaning toward '69, but could be wrong.

    Good, sturdy cars for the most part. I'd imagine most examples had a Buick 350 V-8, but in '69 they offered a 400 or 430 as well, and for '69 a 455. All good engines, and the automatic transmission they used was a good, solid unit. Body and trim parts might be a bit hard to get ahold of though, so if you seek out one, get the nicest example that you can.

    I recently received this photo of my great-grandfather and his family taken about 1926. I've never seen a car like this. It looks like it would have weighed a ton! Can someone identify the make, year and model?

    The disc wheel style tells me that's a mid-20s Packard Roadster, here's a similar car which is a 1927 Packard 426, a very spiffy car for the era>

  • fintailfintail Posts: 34,520
    I suspect this is a ~1925 Studebaker
  • texasestexases Posts: 5,717
    More like the Studebaker, definitely not a Packard (note the radiator and hood on the Packard), but the radiator shell on the Studebakers I've found is more rounded on top. But '26-'28 is a good guess for age.
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,796
    I had a look at some Studebaker pics and I'd have to agree. The radiator cowl and grille is more similar to a Stude than a Packard which had a very distinctive grille (my bad!). The winged radiator cap is also seen on many contemporary Studebakers.

    1926 Studebaker:

    I found only a few photos of them with disc wheels but there could be a million reasons for that. In my defense steel disc wheels like that were very common on 20s Packards.

    Yeah that radiator shell was giving me problems. I was just using guess-and-check methods.

    The Antique Automobile Club of America Identification Forum has more experts and activity, they know more than me,

    Your picture didn't post. It has to a picture held on a website such as photobucket.com. On the site they have a link that you can copied and paste into your post here. After pasting it, you can select the whole link and then press the IMG button shown below to give it the proper html markings to appear as a picture. Or leave the link and folks can just click on the link to see the picture.

  • imidazol97imidazol97 Crossroads of America: I70 & I75Posts: 18,646
    Your picture didn't show up. It was not a jpg image so that's why IMG button didn't work.

    Here's the link you posted:

    Okay I figured it out for him.

    I think it's some kind of aftermarket piece.
